I don't intend to get too serious, but I need some games to intersperse with the chess and that people are more amenable to playing in a social setting. Scrabble seems decent, since it can handle four players and most people have it. Monopoly is a fine game to play in a social setting, and I heartily endorse it, but I really doubt the utility of any sort of focussed study. I mean, what the hell would I look at? Of course, Scrabble would eventually run into the same sort of problem as chess: people quickly notice that somebody who actually knows anything about the game will often mop up the floor with them. However, with 4 people playing, the luck element is rather strong, so true love will find you in the end.
